Snow, Facials and A Top

We had a major winter storm here this weekend. There is easily 12-14 inches of snow and drifts from 18 to 20 inches. Lots of fun. I did actually get stuck in the driveway, and after that it was bad, but I am loving Traction Control on my truck! It works great! One would think that my Dear Hubby would have said "Hey its really bad out, I think you should stay home." But he didn't so out I went! So he comes home because I told him I got stuck and brings the plow truck from work. What happens - he gets stuck in the yard because he went too far and it wasn't frozen. Now there are some serious ruts in our yard. I meant to take pictures of the snow but just haven't gotten there.

I actually went to get a facial yesterday. My "son" TJ gave me one from his mom who does that kinda stuff for a living for my birthday last year and I just never used it. So I went. And well not so much, I didn't really like it. It was nice and all but it seemed to last FOREVER! and made my face feel really oily when it was done. I didn't see much difference. But then again, I did get carded the other day...

Yes, I got carded. FOR A VIDEO GAME!!! I had all three boys last weekend at Wal-Mart to spend their gift cards. We were buying a video game rated "M" which you have to be 17 to buy. So the lady says "Are you 17?" I was like "yeah, do you want to see my ID?" Mind you the boys are rolling by this point! She said YES! I couldn't believe it. As I am getting out my ID she says "Are you their mom?" "Yep" I answer. She looks at my ID and says "Oh, OK". Not really sure who was more embarressed Me that she thought I was their sister or her because she carded me. I happen to be 34 for those who want to know! And of course the first thing they say when we get home "Dad, Sara got carded for a video game!!" and start rolling with laughter again!

So next weekend Ashley and her fiance and his daughter are coming up for a visit. We are going to have our little Christmas celebration. So this is what I have been crazily working on to get done. The top is done. All I have to do is baste it, quilt it and bind it! I am not sure how I want to quilt it though. I can't do all that cool stuff so its either in the ditch or meandering. I am thinking meandering, but what do you think?

Not much else is going on here. It has been a great weekend to stay inside and quilt. I do have to work tomorrow since I have my one year check-up with the Dr. on Tuesday. (Mom, Dad I will call you both when I am done.) I am riding with LST and Fire tomorrow so hopefully it will be good and we will get some calls, but no dead guys! I have had two in the last 2 weeks!

I am off to do some blog reading (which I know I won't get to all of you!) and then some reading for book club before I head to bed in about an hour.

Happy Quilting!

What a beautiful quilt! I think meandering would look great.

Congrats on getting carded. :)

Ha ha! That is a funny story; I WISH I got carded for stuff. I love facials. I think they can be painful but then your face glows for a few days... Oh well. To each their own.
PS Thanks for your comment :)

sometimes I like getting carded...other times it is clearly just wrong. I have to admit that it happens less and less though. Love the pink quilt! Pretty!

I know, what's up with all the DOA's? For some reason I have a fascination with reading obituaries, big increase these last few weeks.
My husband is in emergency services, and almost every shift they are having DOA and suicides. Be careful in the snow and all the best wishes for your Dr's appt.

that's a gorgeous quilt top. i'd go with meandering on it probably. i think it would make it look "vintage" maybe. it's so, so pretty. good job.
